Benjamin Frey
Modern Myths and Metaphors:

Perspectives on Carnivals, Travel and the Circus
April 4 - May 11, 2014
Benjamin Frey

 

“These drawings focus on subjects from the worlds of carnivals, travel, and the circus. The characters and experiences from these worlds are unusual and work as a kind of mythology for the modern age. The circus is one of the last places where we see “monsters” and “heroes” before us and these subjects share the virtue of taking us out of familiar realms and allowing us a new perspective on the world. And yet, as unusual as this world may be it is also a return to a childlike world of adventure and wonder.

As Socrates suggested “philosophy begins in wonder” and I want my work to serve not only as icons of uncommon events but also as metaphors for aspects of our lives that we encounter every day."

- Benjamin Frey
